Cordenon Makes New Friends

Cordenon has long been a part of our paper family with only minor changes to their product lines.  This year 2013 Gruppo Cordenon Italy has decided to join arms with Neenah Paper Mill making them their North American Supplier. This decision comes with some changes to the products offered in North America.

We wanted to take a moment to update any changes that may affect your projects and our stocking choices.  We have moved the discontinued items into our Clearance Section and these are available while supplies last.

Starry eyed for Stardreams

Stardream Metallics offer so many shades to be adored.  These jewel toned metallics are almost dreamy! Once in a while we have to say goodbye to some of our favorite beauties, but it is very uncommon when it comes to this vast line of metallics.

30 plus Shades of Colorful Metallic Papers

More than 30 beautiful metallic shades

Our latest farewell is a sweet good bye to Serpentine, Malachite and the original shade of Lapis Lazuli.  Don’t be alarmed, Lapis Lazuli is still present, it just received a slight face lift and we are calling it the NEW Lapis Lazuli.  Also, we at paper-papers are saying good-bye to Emerald for a time.  We might be swayed to grab it back up if the demand is high, but as for now, we are letting Emerald rest in peace. (updated 8/2013 ==> Emerald has been revived and now active again – some other colors have be discontinued, View current post Cordenon makes new friends)

This beautiful italian line of metallic papers is laser friendly but does not play nice with inkjet printers.  Be sure to know your output  when planning a project and printing on Stardream, dry toner options work well along with other professional processes.  Wonderful 81 Text and 105 Cover make creative projects pop with quality and  brilliance.

We stock folio paper, cut paper and lots of envelopes…check out our broad range of product offerings from the very popular metallic choice, Stardream Metallics!

Euro Flap Envelopes

We are stocking the lovely EURO FLAP envelope in this universal White and Natural.  Our envelopes are converted from Brockway 32/80 Felt Finish Papers and present themselves as a rich, quality product.   The White shade is not a bright color but more of a milky white.  Paper is on our floor to match these envelopes exactly.  Hit our live chat if you have any trouble finding the matching paper or card stock.

Some of our older Euro Flaps are now moved to this new stock. Be sure to view all of the Brockway items and their corresponding envelopes.

Cougar Opaque Announcement Envelopes

Cougar A-Size envelopes are offered in a variety of sizes along with two shades and two finishes.  With such a vast arrangement to stock, we are not offering the 32/80 Text (118 gsm).  We recommend using 28/70 (104 gsm) as this is offered in all sizes and is only slightly different.  Cougar envelopes are and have been a popular product for years and offered great quality at reasonable prices.

If you were using 32/80 smooth finish, transitioning to 28/70 vellum finish has an average caliper difference that is minimal. Actually, when looking up the average caliper, these have the same results, 28/70 vellum average caliper 6.0 and 32/80 smooth average caliper 5.9 – This is only addressing the ‘bulk’ factor – but possibly that may have been your only concern. You can view all the Cougar Envelopes we offer with one simple click. Also, before switching grades, view our paper weight chart for Cougar Paper to best determine your project needs.

If you are considering a grade transition and your project requires smooth finish, yet thicker, we are suggesting Neenah Classic Crest Solar White or Natural.  We do offer all A-Sizes with 32/80 smooth finish.

Mohawk VIA stock transitions and recommendations

Mohawk VIA Vellum MARIGOLD was discontinued 2012 by Mohawk Paper.  We recommend VIA Vellum Sunflower as a nice option. View all Mohawk VIA paper and envelopes

A2 and A7 MARIGOLD Envelopes are no longer stocked,
